If I could take the best from the STi and V1...
... I'd have a hell of a detector.
I want :-
The front horn off the STi
the rear horn off the V1
the display of the STI
the arrows off the V1 but with software control from Bel to stop them gibbering around
automute from the STi
the way the alert ramps up from the V1
filtering from Bel
laser detection from the V1
build from the STi but with design from someone at Apple
window mount from STi
power on delay from the STi
thinner profile of the V1 so it would fit over my rearview mirror
I like the voice alerts too
They're both GREAT detectors but there's still plenty of room for improvements.
What about a remote-style (RX75/SR7) V1 that was invisible to Spectre? I'd cheerfully pay $2000 for something like that, and RDs aren't even illegal where I live. It would just be nice knowing I don't have to stuff my detector into a pocket or backpack every time I leave my car in a parking lot.
Ooops I forgot the stealth from the STi.

It could interface with the sat nav which would have all static cam locations installed anaaaand it would all be displayed on the windscreen with a HUD. I'd pay for that 8)

Sounds good to me. What a RD this would be.

That would be great but there would be some patents problems
We'll just have to keep it under the table :twisted:
